The Ultimate List of Reading Reward Programs for Kids

Rewards are very motivating! I compiled this list of reading reward programs, to help encourage your children  or students to read more. Some programs are available yearly while others are only offered during the summer, and a couple on my list are local to Riverside, CA…..  Read over the list and see which programs would work well for your family, class or group!

  • Audio Books Sync – During the summer teens 13+ will be able to download 2 Free audiobooks a week. 
  • Barnes & Noble “Book Your Summer” – Read 8 Books, log the name and favorite part of the book in your journal, and receive a free book! (Teens and adults can participate in this program).
  • Book Adventure – Earn rewards for reading. Free 7 day trial.
  • Chuck E. Cheese Rewards – Download the Reading Rewards calendar.  Your child reads a book a day for two weeks, earning them 10 free play points. (They have many other reward calendars and certificates to earn more play points).
  • In-N-Out “Cover to Cover” –  A school principal has to order rewards on behalf of the school. At this time, individuals cannot participate.
  • Pizza Hut “BOOK IT!” – Your child reads 20 books  0r 20 minutes, earning them a free personal pan pizza. Log the number of books online when they meet their goal they receive a coupon code for their pizza.
  • Sylvan Learning “Book Adventure” – Child reads books and then takes a quiz to make sure they comprehend what they read. They earn points based on how much they remember from reading the book.
  • Your Local Public Library – Check with your local library, they will usually have a reading program that includes books and other prizes.

    Your article about The Ultimate List of Reading
    Reward Programs for Kids – Creative Home Life is the best I have read! The
    site is interesting and useful, keep it that way! Kisses everyone! 🙂

    This woulda definitely got me reading more when I was a kid, lol. I remember having summer reading for Honors English – whew, man did I procrastinate on that!

    1. That was my hope when creating this list… That these programs would excite kids to read more.

  3. Robert Zerve

    I heard if you delay your child’s reading skill development until he or she enters school, you are putting your child at risk…
    Did you know that 67% of all Grade 4 students cannot read at a proficient level!

    1. Sharon

      Robert, I wonder where you heard the idea that delaying reading until the age of formal schooling contributes to academic risk. That bit of confusion doesn’t match with anything I have read or seen in my years of teaching. Consider reading Better Late Than Early by Raymond Moore. Then, for the sake of knowing what some consider the flip side of the research, read Teach Your Baby To Read, by Glen Doman. It may surprise you to see that those two seemingly opposing books agree with each other when it comes to brain science as well as eye strain. There is a wrong way to approach early reading, but there is also a time when delayed reading can cause one to miss possible close-vision delays.
